How about a change-up to your good old-fashioned deviled eggs? Adding avocado not only boosts the flavor of a classic recipe, but you’ll reap ALL the nutritional benefits as well. Avocados are loaded with vitamin B5, B6, C, E, K, folate and have more potassium than a banana! Don’t forget the heart healthy monounsaturated fat either~all in all, it’s a WIN-WIN! Plus, this recipe will help you use up all those leftover eggs from the Easter Bunny. These babies are more fun to eat than egg-salad. Enjoy!
